flea market

spring is the best time for flea markets (yard sales).
when I was living in London, I was at Camden Market(my flat was 2 minutes from Portobello market) every weekend , my parents also love flea markets and you can find them there on Sunday mornings ... the pictures are from last summer in Tisvilde
in Denmark. I'm sure I will be back there later this year.

my top 5:

-Canterbury market on Sunday (small market but very good)
-Dutch church flea markets (love them,only on Saturdays)
-Düsseldorf at the Großmarkt (ones a months,great ceramic and co)
-Edinburgh car boot at the airport (great for toys, books and cd's)
-Tisvilde, Denmark (great in the summer, also close to the beach)
